A LOT OF TIMES WHEN

ASKING FOR SO MANY

THINGS --

Efrem: SO MUCH TO GET

TO IN "STUDIO 5" NOW.

Efrem HEY, IS SOMEBODY THERE?

LET ME HEAR YOUR THOUGHTS.

REALLY?

[GIGGLING]

I LOST A BET TO HIM.

IF I HAD WON, HE WOULD BE

WEARING SOMETHING

DIFFERENT RIGHT NOW.

WHEN CAN YOU GO OUT?

WHEN MY NEXT PATIENT

GETS BETTER.

SO DO ME A FAVOR, GET

BETTER FAST.

Efrem: THAT'S A SCENE

FROM THE FILM "MIRACLES

FROM HEAVEN," THE AMAZING

STORY OF HEALING FOR A

LITTLE GIRL WHO WAS

STANDING AT DEATH'S DOOR.

THAT STORY IS THE FOCUS OF

THIS EDITION OF "STUDIO

5."

WE HAVE YOUR ALL-ACCESS

BACK-STAGE PASS TO THE

MAKING OF THE MOVIE.

FIRST, HERE IS A LOOK AT

THE HEADLINES FROM THE

WORLD OF UPLIFTING

ENTERTAINMENT.

IT IS YOUR WEEKLY TOP FIVE

FROM "STUDIO 5."

AT NUMBER FIVE: MORE THAN

50 MILLION PEOPLE ACROSS

THE GLOBE SING THEIR

MUSIC.

THIS IS OUR SONG.

Efrem: AND NOW PURE

FLICKS FILMS IS BRINGING

THE FILM TO THEATERS

SEPTEMBER 16th.

WE'RE THE BIGGEST BAND

YOU'VE NEVER HEARD OF.

[LAUGHTER]

Efrem: STILLSONG,

WHILE DATING WHEN THEY

ACKNOWLEDGED THEY WERE

SAVING SEX FOR MARRIAGE.

*

Efrem: AND AT NUMBER

THREE: IT IS SETH CURRIE'S

LEADING LADY, AISHA.

WE HAVE RYAN, NOW, WHO

IS FOUR AND A HALF MONTHS,

SO WE'RE JUST STARTING TO

BUILD OUR TRADITIONS AS A

FAMILY.

Efrem: SHE HAS HER

OWN COOKING SHOW ON THE

COOKING CHANNEL IN THE

WORKS.

AND SHE TOLD "PEOPLE

MAGAZINE" SHE HAD A NO

ATHLETES POLICY BEFORE

DATING THE GOLDEN STATE

WARRIOR.

THEY WERE KIDS WHEN THEY

MET, AND AISHA REFUSED HIS

INITIAL REQUEST TO DATE,

BUT SHE FINALLY GAVE IN,

AND SHE PICKED HIM UP FOR

THAT VERY FIRST DATE.

I GOT A TWEET THIS

MORNING ASKING ME IF

LOOKING AT PORN WAS

CHEATING.

Efrem: A PREACHER'S

REMINDERS THIS WEEK'S

NUMBER TWO.

THE FOX NETWORK HAS BEGUN

ITS SUMMER TEST RUN OF THE

TALK SHOW FOR THE POPULAR

MEGA CHURCH PASTOR, AND

PRODUCED BY ONE OF THE

CREATORS OF "THE VIEW."

IS BEYONCE A ROLE MODEL

OR NOT?

Efrem: THE SHOW IS

GETTING A THREE-WEEK RUN,

AND "STUDIO 5" IS CHATTING

WITH THE PASTORS NEXT

WEEK.

> AND NOW AT NUMBER ONE:

AT BATON ROUGE TO

MINNEAPOLIS TO DALLAS,

DEADLY VIOLENCE HAS

AMERICA IN MOURNING, AND

SLIBTS ARCELEBRITIES ARE LENDING

THEIR VOICES, CALLING FOR

CHANGE.

WE, AMERICA, NEED TO DO

A LOT OF SOUL SEARCHING.

AND I ALSO BELIEVE SIN IS

AT THE ROOT OF IT.

Efrem: AND THOSE ARE

YOUR TOP FIVE FOR THIS

WEEK.

CHRISTY BEAM WROTE THE

BOOK THAT INSPIRED THE

FILM "MIRACLES FROM

HEAVEN."

CHRISTY IS SITTING DOWN

WITH US A LITTLE LATER IN

THE SHOW.

FIRST, HERE IS A LOOK AT

THE MAKING OF THE MOVIE.

CHRISTIE BEAM WATCHES

CLOSELY AS THE PAGES OF

HER BOOK, "MIRACLES FROM

HEAVEN," COME TO LIFE ON

THIS FILM SET.

THIS IS THE AMAZING STORY

OF HER DAUGHTER, ANNABELLE

ANNABELLE'S HEALING FROM A

DEADLY DIGESTIVE DISORDER.

WE DON'T KNOW WHAT OUR

SCHEDULE IS GOING TO BE

WITH THE DOCTOR.

WE JUST HAVE TO BE

AVAILABLE.

Efrem: JENNIFER

GARNER PLACE CHRISTY, A

ROLE SHE CALLS

TRANSFORMATIVE.

MY INITIAL THOUGHTS

WERE, I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT

TO THINK.

I DIDN'T KNOW IF I COULD

BELIEVE, ON A BASIC LEVEL,

BELIEVE THE STORY.

BUT I WANTED TO KNOW MORE.

Efrem: CHRISTY AND

HER FAMILY WATCHED ANNA

SUFFER THROUGH YEARS OF

PAIN, INNOVATIVE HOSPITAL

TESTS AND SURGERIES.

UNABLE TO DO ANYTHING

ELSE, DOCTORS SENT ANNA

HOME TO DIE.

THEN DESPITE THE PAIN, ONE

DAY SHE DECIDED TO CLIMB A

TREE WITH HER SISTERS.

IT WAS A HOLLOW

COTTONWOOD, AND SHE FELL

INSIDE, 30 FEET,

HEAD-FIRSFIRSTFIRST TO THE BOTTOM.

AND UNEXPECTANTLY, ANNA

WOKE UP, WALKED AWAY

HEALED, WITH A STORY OF

MEETING JESUS IN HEAVEN.

YOU'RE TELLING ME THAT

WHEN THIS BABY GIRL FELL

30 FEET, SHE HIT HER HEAD

JUST RIGHT, AND IT DIDN'T

KILL HER AND IT DIDN'T

PARALYZE HER; IT HEALED

HER?

YES.

Efrem: WE WATCHED THE

FILM WITH ANNA AND HER

FAMILY IN TEXAS.

IS WHAT HAPPENED WHAT YOU

PRAYED FOR?

I DIDN'T EXACTLY PRAY

FOR IT, BUT I JUST KNEW I

WAS TIRED OF DEALING WITH

IT.

AND I DIDN'T WANT TO HAVE

TO DEAL WITH IT ANYMORE.

BUT I WASN'T, LIKE, I HOPE

I FALL IN A TREE AND GET

HEALED.

READY, AND ACTION!

Efrem: I LOVE TALKING

TO PEOPLE WHO CAN SEE

THEIR LIVES PORTRAYED ON

THE BIG SCREEN.

ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY HAVE

SUCH GREAT ACTORS AND

ACTRESSES PLAYING THEM.

DID JENNIFER GARNER --

OH, SHE DID AN AMAZING

JOB.

SHE NAILED IT.

HER HEART WAS SO IN IT

FROM THE VERY BEGINNING.

FROM THE MOMENT WE MET, WE

JUST BONDED.

MAYBE AS MOTHERS, WE JUST

CONNECTED.

IT WARMED MY HEART BECAUSE

SHE HAD MY BOOK, AND SHE

WAS POURING OVER THE

PAGES.

SHE HAD HIGHLIGHTED

THINGS.

SHE HAD QUESTIONS FOR ME

ABOUT THINGS.

SO SHE WANTED -- SHE

COMPLETELY ENGULFED

HERSELF IN IT.

THIS ISN'T ACID REFLUX.

SHE'S BEEN FLOWING UP FOR

WEEKS.

WELL, MA'AM, I'M THE

DOCTOR AND THAT'S MY

DIAGNOSIS.

IF YOU'LL EXCUSE ME, I

HAVE OTHER PATIENTS I NEED

TO SEE.

EXCUSE ME.

THIS IS NOT ACID REFLUX.

THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG

WITH MY LITTLE GIRL.

YOU NEED TO CALM DOWN.

NO.

YOU CALM DOWN.

YOU FIND ME ANOTHER

DOCTOR.

YOU RUN ME SOME MORE

TESTS.

I'M NOT LEAVING THIS

HOSPITAL UNTIL I KNOW WHAT

IS WRONG WITH MY DAUGHTER.

Efrem: WHEN YOU MET

CHRISTY BEAM AND YOU

THOUGHT, I'M GOING TO PUT

THIS WOMAN'S LIFE ON

SCREEN, WHAT DID YOU THINK

YOU HAD TO BRING TO THE

TABLE TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN?

IT WAS VERY, VERY

IMPORTANT TO ME THAT WE

BROUGHT TO SCREEN WHAT I

SAW IN REAL LIFE, WHICH

WAS THE ENORMOUS LOVE

BETWEEN THIS FAMILY.

AND THAT WE BE ALLOWED TO

LET THERE BE STRUGGLE

WITHIN THAT LOVE BECAUSE

THAT IS PART OF YOUR LIFE.

AND YOU CAN'T EXPECT TO GO

THROUGH SOMETHING THIS

HUGE WITHOUT HAVING

MOMENTS OF STRIFE.

Efrem: "MIRACLES FROM

HEAVEN,HEAVEN," UNITS A UNIQUE

TEAM.

BISHOP T.D. JAKES AND

DEVON.

THEY WORKED TOGETHER ON

"HEAVEN IS FOR REAL."

THE CHAIRMAN OF SONY AT

THE TIME, HAD CALLED AND

SAID, WE NEED TO DO

"HEAVEN IS REAL 2."

AND LITERALLY, IT WAS

LIKE, WELL, COLTON CAME

BACK.

AND SHE WAS, LIKE, NO,

THERE IS AN AUDIENCE THAT

WANTS MORE CONTENT LIKE

THIS.

AND IMMEDIATELY IT WAS,

HOW DO WE DO IT.

AND HIS BOOK AGENT HAD

THIS BOOK PROPOSAL, CALLED

"THREE MIRACLES FROM

HEAVEN."

AND IT WAS A

MOTHER-DAUGHTER STORY, A

MOTHER FIGHTING FOR THE

HEALING OF HER CHILD.

AN AMAZING MIRACLE

HAPPENED.

IT WAS A PAGE TURNER.

AND WHEN YOU PUT THAT

PROPOSAL DOWN, IT WAS

CLEAR THIS WAS THE MOVIE

TO DO.

Efrem: WE KNOW THAT

CHRISTY BEAM IS CENTRAL TO

THIS STORY, BUT ONE OF THE

THINGS THAT TOUCHED ME WAS

HER HUSBAND.

AS A FATHER AND HER

HUSBAND, I COULD IDENTIFY.

IT'S GOING TO BE OKAY.

IT'S PROBABLY JUST A BUG.

THE DOCTOR WILL GIVE US

SOMETHING FOR IT.

I STILL FEEL ANXIOUS.

ABOUT WHAT?

ABOUT EVERYTHING.

THE KIDS, THE HOUSE, YOUR

BUSINESS --

THE KIDS?

THE KIDS ARE FINE.

MY BUSINESS HAS DONE

WORSE.

BABY, YOU SAY THAT LIKE

IT IS ABSOLUTE.

WELL, THIS MAY TAKE A

WHILE, BUT WE'LL BE OKAY.

WE'LL BE OKAY.

IT'S A GOOD LOVE,

CHRISTY BEAM.

Efrem: WHAT DO YOU

WANT MEN TO TAKE AWAY FROM

THAT?

BECAUSE I KNOW TURNING TO

A WIFE WHO IS FALLING

APART, THINKING HOW DO I

PULL THIS TOGETHER FOR

YOU --

YES.

I THINK FIRST OF ALL,

YOU'RE ONE OF THE FEW

PEOPLE TO ASK THAT

QUESTION.

I THINK IT IS A GREAT

QUESTION TO BE ASKED.

YOU WOULD THINK WITH THE

FEMALE DIRECTORS AT THE

LEVEL THAT WE HAVE, AND

WITH THE FEMALE PRIME STAR

THE LEVEL OF GARNER, THAT

IT WOULD BE A CHICK FLICK.

IT'S A FEMALE STORY.

IT'S ABOUT HER MOTHER.

BUT IT IS NOT A CHICK

FLICK.

IT DOES NOT EMASCULATE

MEN, NOR DOES IT

TRIVIALIZE THE MASCULINE

ROLE.

HE IS STILL RELEVANT AND

POWERFUL.

AND MEN WILL ENJOY THIS

FILM BECAUSE IT IS NOT THE

DUMBING DOWN OF THE

MASCULINE ROLE IN THE

HOME.

Efrem: THIS IS A

STORY OF HOPE, FROM THE

HEART TO THE HEART.

I WANT PEOPLE TO COME

AWAY FEELING HOPEFUL.

AND I WANT PEOPLE TO COME

AWAY AND FEEL LIKE THEY

ARE SURROUNDED BY MIRACLES

AND THEY ARE SURROUNDED BY

LOVE.

AND SOMETIMES YOU MAY HAVE

TO DIG THEM OUT.

IT IS WORTH DIGGING THEM

OUT.

IT IS WORTH TAKING THE

TIME TO LOOK AROUND YOU

AND REALLY FIND THE JOY

THAT ALREADY SCOIFORTS IN

YOUEXISTS INYOUR LIFE.

Efrem: JENNIFER

GARNER SHARED SHE GREW UP

GOING TO CHURCH IN HER

HOME IN WEST VIRGINIA.

AND NOW AFTER DOING THIS

MOVIE, IT IS SOMETHING SHE

AND HER CHILDREN HAVE

STARTED DOING REGULARLY IN

LOS ANGELES.

> STILL AHEAD ON "STUDIO

5"...

SHE IS VERY GROUNDED.

I DON'T KNOW IF THAT IS A

MIDDLE CHILD THING OR IF

BECAUSE SHE HAS BEEN TO

HEAVEN CHILD THING.

Efrem: ...THE REAL

LIFE MOTHER OF ANNA BEAM

TAKES US INSIDE THE FILM

AND INSIDE HER DAUGHTER'S

MIRACLE.

I THINK THE MESSAGE OF

FAIMFAITH THAT IS IN THIS

FILM, AND THE MESSAGE OF

PERSEVERANCE THAT THE

FAMILY HAS TO KEEP, IS

REALLY IMPORTANT.

PEOPLE HAVE GOT TO SEE

THAT YOU HAVE TO KEEP THE

FAITH.

Efrem: THAT'S QUEEN

LATIFAH, WHO JOINS

ALONGSIDE JENNIFER GARNER

IN "MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN."

GARNER PLAYS CHRISTY BEAM,

THE MOTHER OF THE YOUNG

GIRL IN DESPERATE NEED OF

A MIRACLE.

WE SIT DOWN WITH CHRISTY

BEAM FOR TODAY'S "STUDIO

5" INTERVIEW.

ACTRESS JENNIFER GARNER

BRINGS THE LIFE OF CHRISTY

BEAM TO THE BIG SCREEN IN

THE FILM "MIRACLES FROM

HEAVEN."

IT IS A ROLE GARNER

PERSONALLY CALLS

TRANSFORMATIVE.

I LOVE TALKING TO PEOPLE

WHO CAN SEE THEIR LIVES

PORTRAYED ON THE BIG

SCREEN, ESPECIALLY WHEN

THEY HAVE SUCH GREAT

ACTORS AND ACTRESSES

PLAYING THEM.

DID JENNIFER GARNER NAIL

YOU?

OH, SHE DID AN AMAZING

JOB.

SHE NAILED IT.

AND HER HEART WAS SO IN IT

FROM THE VERY BEGINNING.

FROM THE MOMENT WE MET, WE

JUST BONDED.

MAYBE AS MOTHERS, WE JUST

CONNECTED.

IT JUST WARMED MY HEART

BECAUSE SHE HAD MY BOOK.

AND SHE WAS POURING OVER

THE PAGES.

SHE HAD HIGHLIGHTED

THINGS.

SHE HAD QUESTIONS FOR ME

ABOUT THINGS.

SO SHE COMPLETELY ENGULFED

HERSELF IN IT.

Efrem: BEAM SHARED

HER FAMILY'S STORY IN THE

BOOK ALSO TITLED "MIRACLES

FROM HEAVEN" HE HEAVEN."

HER DAUGHTER, ANNA,

SUFFERED YEARS OF PAIN,

HOSPITAL TESTS AND

SURGERY.

SHE WAS SENT HOME TO DIE

WHEN SHE FELL 30 FEET,

HEAD-FIRST, NO A

COTTONWOOD TREE.

SHE WAS TRAPPED FOR HOURS.

BUT WOKE UP AND WALKED

AWAY HEALED, WITH A STORY

OF MEETING JESUS IN

HEAVEN.

WERE YOU PRAYING FOR A

MIRACLE?

I WISH I COULD SAY I

WAS PRAYING FOR A MIRACLE,

BUT I WASN'T.

SOMETIMES MY PRAYERS WERE,

LET ANNA EAT THIS WHOLE

PLATE OF FOOD.

LET TODAY BE THE DAY HER

PAIN IS AT AN EIGHT, NOT A

10.

SO I DIDN'T PRAY FOR A

MIRACLE.

I PRAYED FOR MAYBE SIMPLE

THINGS.

NOT PUTTING GOD WHERE HE

SHOULD BE, ABLE TO ANSWER

THOSE BIG PRAYERS.

Efrem: DID YOU EVER

STOP AS A FAMILY, OR YOU

AS AN INDIVIDUAL, AND SAY,

GOD, WHY HER?

I-OH OH, MY WORD, I ASKED

WHY ANNA?

WHY ME?

WHY US?

I REMEMBER CRYING OUT TO

HIM AND SAYING, DO YOU SEE

WHAT I'M SEEING?

ARE YOU FEELING WHAT I'M

FEELING?

HOW COULD YOU LET THIS

HAPPEN?

SO MANY TIMES I SCAD THAT ASKED THAT

QUESTION.

Efrem: THERE ARE

TIMES YOU WRITE ABOUT

WHERE YOUR DAUGHTER WAS

ESSENTIALLY READY TO GIVE

UP.

SHE SAYS, TAKE ME BACK TO

HEAVEN.

TELL ME ABOUT THAT

CONVERSATION.

I LEARNED SO MUCH ABOUT

GOD AND WHO HE IS, AND AT

THAT TIME I WOULD JUST CRY

OUT TO GOD, PLEASE DON'T

ANSWER HER PRAYER.

PLEASE DON'T TAKE HER.

PLEASE BE WITH HER.

PLEASE LOVE HER.

IT WAS MORE OF MY CRYING

OUT TO HIM, IS THE BEST

WAY TO DESCRIBE IT, THAN

ININTIMATELY TALKING TO HIM

AND HAVING A RELATIONSHIP

ABOUT IT.

BUT MY PRAYERS WERE JUST

FOR PROTECTION AND FOR

SAFETY, AND PLEASE DON'T

TAKE HER.

Efrem: I READ YOU

SAID THAT WAS HARD TO

ACCEPT AND BELIEVE THAT

GOD COULD LOVE YOUR CHILD

MORE THAN YOU.

WHAT MAKES YOU SAY THAT?

BECAUSE IT JUST HIT ME

ONE DAY, AND I STILL GET

SO OVERWHELMED THAT AS

MUCH AS I LOVE ANNABELLE,

AS FULL OF LOVE AS MY

HEART IS FOR HER, HE LOVES

HER MORE THAN I DO.

SO WHEN I YEARN AND

STRUGGLE AND WATCH HER

SUFFER, HOW MUCH MORE DOES

HE HURT TO WATCH THAT BABY

SUFFER.

WHEN THAT CLICKED IN MY

BRAIN, IT WAS, LIKE, HE IS

NOT WATCHING THIS.

HE IS GETTING THIS.

HE IS FEELING THIS.

HE IAND I BEGAN TO FEEL THAT

GOD WAS AS MUCH A PART OF

WHAT WAS HAPPENING AS

OPPOSED TO A GOD SITTING

OVER IT WATCHING IT.

Efrem: GOD IS

PERFORMING MIRACLES ALL

AROUND US.

WE JUST NEED TO WAKE UP

AND PAY ATTENTION.

THAT FILM IS NOW AVAILABLE

FOR DIGITAL DOWNLOAD AND

ON D.V.D.

> STILL TO COME ON

"STUDIO 5," FROM A MIRACLE

STORY TO A MILLION PEOPLE

ON THE NATIONAL MALL.

WE THINK SOMETHING

HAPPENS WHEN GOD'S PEOPLE

GATHER IN FAITH, IN

HUMILITY, AND PRAY FOR

CHANGE.

Efrem: WE'RE SITTING

DOWN WITH TWO OF THE MEN

BEHIND "TOGETHER 2014,"

WHIC,"2016,"WHICH IS NOW JUST DAYS

ONE WEEK AWAY FROM WHAT IS

BEING CALLED A GENERATION

DEFINING MOMENT,

JULY 16th.

A MILLION PEOPLE WILL FILL

THE NATIONAL MALL FOR AN

EVENT CALLED "TOGETHER

2016."

I RECENTLY SPOKE TO THE

MAN BEHIND THE MOVEMENT

AND RECORDING ARTIST

MICHAEL W.SMITH, TO GET A

SPEAK PEEK.

I BELIEVE JESUS PRAYED

WE WOULD BE TOGETHER, IN

JOHN 16, AND THAT WE WOULD

BE ONE AS A FAMILY.

WE KNOW SOMETHING HAPPENS

WHEN GOD'S PEOPLE GATHER

IN FAITH AND HUMILITY AND

PRAY FOR CHANGE.

WE TALK ABOUT 2 CHRONICLE,

AND WE TALK ABOUT THE

MOMENT WHERE WE'RE COMING

NOT WITH ALL OF THE

ANSWERS, BUT WE'RE COMING

TO THE ONE WHO HAS THE

ANSWERS.

WE BELIEVE THIS IS TIME.

IT IS AN URGENT HOUR, AND

IT IS TIME TO RALLY TO

JESUS.

AND THAT'S WHAT THIS

GATHERING IS ALL ABOUT.

THIS HAS BEEN MANY,

MANY YEARS IN THE MAKING.

YEAH, I THINK ANYBODY WITH

ANY COMMON SENSE, IF YOU

WATCH THE NEWS AND SEE

WHAT IS GOING ON IN OUR

COUNTRY, IT IS SORT OF

SPIRALLING OUT OF CONTROL.

THERE IS A WIDE DIVISION,

A RACIAL DIVISION,

POLITICALLY, ECONOMICALLY,

AND EVEN THE CHURCH HAS

BEEN DIVIDED.

AND WE ARE IN TROUBLE.

AND NOBODY CAN FIX US

ACCEPEXCEPT GOD.

JESUS HAS THE ANSWER.

I THINK SOMETHING VERY,

VERY SIGNIFICANT CAN

HAPPEN ON THAT DAY.

BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE COMING

FOR ONE PURPOSE: GOD,

YOU'VE GOT TO HEAL OUR

NATION; YOU'RE THE ONLY

ONE WHO CAN DO IT.

MY FAITH IS EXTREMELY

HIGH.

I GET ASKED TO DO THINGS

ALL OF THE TIME, BUT THIS

IS AT THE TOP OF THE LIST

BECAUSE IT IS IMPORTANT.

WHAT IS REALLY REMARKABLE

IS THE NEXT GENERATION OF

PEOPLE WHO ARE LEADING

THIS THING.

THIS ISN'T AN

EVANGELICAL EVENT.

THIS ISN'T A CATHOLIC

EVENT.

THIS IS A JESUS EVENT.

WE BELIEVE THAT EVERYBODY

IS WELCOME TO THE TABLE.

WE'RE ALL UNIFYING.

THIS IS A MAJOR, MAJOR,

BIG, BIG DEAL FOR ALL OF

US.

I THINK BACK STAGE WILL BE

A LOVE FEAST.

I THINK YOU'LL SEE THAT

THE SPIRIT OF IT WILL BE

PRETTY REMARKABLE.

Efrem: "STUDIO 5" IS

ON THE NATIONAL MALL

JULY 16th TO BRING YOU A

BEHIND-THE-SCENES LOOK AT

THE EVENT.

STAY WITH US FOR LIVE

UPDATES ON THAT DAY.

> AND STILL TO COME ON

"STUDIO 5," A CLOSER LOOK

THE AT ANOTHER ARTIST

SCHEDULED TO TAKE THE

STAGE AT "TOGETHER 2016."

[YELLING]

SAY AMEN!

AMEN!

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK.

LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT

WE'RE WORKING ON FOR NEXT

WEEK'S "STUDIO 5."

WE'RE STRUGGLING OR

CELEBRATING, AND HIP-HOP

EMBODIES THAT.

SAY AMEN!

AMEN!

Efrem: HIS FANS KNOW

HIM AS SIMPLY K.D.

HE TALKS TO "STUDIO 5"

ABOUT HIS MUSIC AND HOW

FEAR LED HIM TO FAITH.

IT WASN'T UNTIL I HAD

AN ENCOUNTER WITH THE ONE

WHO MADE ME, ACTUALLY

THROUGH HIP-HOP MUSIC,

THAT I FIGURED OUT THAT IT

WAS -- THAT IT WAS CLEAR

TO ME THAT TO NOT BE COOL

WITH GOD IS A GOOD REASON

TO FEEL UNSAFE.

Efrem: IT IS AN

INTERVIEW AND AN EPISODE

YOU WON'T WANT TO MIS.

MISS.

AND THAT IS JUST ONE STORY

FROM OUR RUNDOWN FROM NEXT

WEEK.

BEFORE WE SAY GOOD-BYE

THIS WEEK, I'M GIVING THE

FINAL WORD TO JAZZ ARTIST

GRETA MANNING.

IT IS A REMINDER OF WHY IT

IS SOMETIMES GOOD TO BE

STILL, BE SILENT, AND

LISTEN.

A LOT OF TIMES WHEN

WE'RE TALKING SO MUCH AND

ASKING FOR SO MANY THINGS,

A LOT OF TIMES WE RECEIVE

WHAT WE FEEL LIKE WE NEED.

IF WE WOULD JUST BE QUIET

AND LISTEN TO WHAT HE IS

SAYING -- BECAUSE MOST OF

THE TIMES IF WE WOULD JUST

GET TO THE ROOT OF WHY HE

CREATED US TO BEGIN WITH

AND OUR PURPOSE, OUR NEEDS

OR FULFILLED.

Efrem: TAKING TIME TO

LISTEN AND FINDING OUR

NEEDS FULFILLED.

THAT IS THE FINAL WORD FOR

TODAY.

UNTIL NEXT TIME, BE SURE

TO REACH OUT AND TOUCH ME

AT EFREM GRAHAM ON

INSTAGRAM, Facebook,

TWITTER, AND SNAPCHAT.

AND COME ON BACK AND SEE
